    I made this today with orange juice & brandy. It burnt a little around the edges, I had kept turning the bowl so I think I will double layer the baking paper next time. Was still a nice cake, nice & light. Doing it with chocolate milk & baileys tomorrow x

  2. I mad mine today 1kg fruit 750mils orange mango juice and brandy mixed together and two cups SRflour cooked on low 8 hours water halfway up the side of tin teatowel worked great
    First time ever cooked in slow cooker

  3. I’ve now made over a dozen of these cakes over the last 3 months and love them .
    The only thing I change from time to time is to use gluten free flour and Xanthan gum and you can’t taste the difference.

  4. Hello, I am doing this cake tomorrow. But my problem is that when I put water in the sc the water enters into the cake tin. Is it ok or shall I wrap the foil around the tin before putting into the sc ? Thanks in advance ☺️☺️

  5. I’m glad I decided to read the reviews as I plonked 1 kg of fruit in chocolate milk 🤦‍♀️. I rescued the fruit and I’ll use it to make another cake.

  6. I cooked mine much longer , but still was a tacky kind of result..or should I say stodgy??
    Was edible, but ouldn’t make again..

  7. Love this cake. I never ate fruit cake until I made this one for my Mum and had to try it for myself. So so good. Easy to make and a great size to gift to people at Christmas.

  8. 5 stars
    So delicious! I have made the full size cake before which was yummy. This smaller size was just as delicious and perfect for less people in the house. Great to have with a cup of tea or with custard. Will definitely be making again.
